Default Scanning negatives

Does anyone have any experience with scanning negatives. I discovered that one of the collections in my local town museum is a collection of several thousand negatives that were once owned by the local photographers.

These would all be stored as b&W (primarily) negatives, although there will be some color. I would hate to have to get them all printed in a darkroom. Are there any tricks to scanning from the negative, then Photoshopping to create a digital file?

I hope to apply for a Heritage grant to allow (college) students to do such work.
